EXCERPT: Tuesday Night [superhero]

Title: Tuesday Night
Author: Harper Kingsley
Characters: Sunfire (Seth Payne), Teen Steel (Tony Randolph), Monteressa, Hartache
Genre: superhero, action, drama, mm
Rating: mature
Summary: Seth is back in Star City with Tony on yet another disastrous mission.

Following Seth was like second nature. Tony had to admit that the guy had fallen into the role of leader as natural as breathing. Probably a result of the leadership courses he'd received at the Training Center as a teenager. Tony had only managed summer classes until the CMPF scholarship, but Seth had been training to be a superhero from the time he was fourteen years old.

Part of Tony would always wonder what his life would have been like if he'd had the money for the intensive training Seth had received. but that was an old regret, one that he couldn't do anything about now.

They were jogging a winding path that cut through side streets and down alleys, keeping an eye out for any people. Everything seemed deserted. It was eerie to see no people bustling about during the day. It gave a horror movie vibe that made the patch of skin between his shoulders itch.

Seth must have shared his unease, because they were moving at a good clip. It wouldn't take them too long to reach Triangle Park, maybe another twenty minutes.

Tony was starting to think things were looking like cake. They'd reach the Park, lay the charges, and be out of range before the fireworks started. They were going to make it.

A flicker of warning. He body-slammed Seth out of the way with a flying tackle. "Get down!"

The ground they would have passed through exploded with a rain of pulverized asphalt and burning debris.

  • Sun, 04:08: I wasted a ridiculous amount of time on God of War III just to decide that it's a DNF game. My blood pressure can't take it.
  • Sun, 04:08: Sure, my discount controller may be a piece of crap, but that doesn't excuse those sucky camera angles. Half the time you can't see the guy.

Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts looked pretty stupid.

It was probably the low-res quality of the trailer, but Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts looked pretty crappy. I think I've become too used to HD; the commercial really threw me off my stride.

Btw, how old is Batman supposed to be in that one? I mean, considering he was in his thirties when he adopted Dick Grayson... then how old does he have to be now? 50s? 60s? I mean, I realize that he's a cartoon, which explains why he always looks the same and never changes his clothes, but if Bruce Wayne was a real dude doing all the things he does, his body would be falling apart.

Current episode of #CSI: Blood Drops. Dakota Fanning was so cute as a kid

There's something about watching old episodes of CSI that makes writing murder mysteries a lot easier.

I've always been a fan of the show, even through the Langston years. The only time I really cringed was when Liev Schreiber played Michael Keppler. That was the season I probably could have done without.

Still, CSI is some classic TV. They've got 14 seasons on Hulu Plus. Or if you've got a taste for lovely old science fiction they've also got Quantum Leap. (Ha, the clothes and Al's "super cool" car in the first episode almost made Coke go up my nose.)

The measure of your telomeres tells whether you're going to develop cancer

Science has reached the point where they can tell if you're going to develop cancer thirteen years before it happens. What? Yep, by measuring the length of peoples' telomeres, they can come up with a pretty good idea of who is going to end up developing the Big-C.

From what I understand, it's basically a case of shortened telomeres meaning that at some point--probably after you've been exposed to a carcinogen (the sun, artificial sweeteners, gamma rays)--your body does not have a good blueprint to fall back on and mistakes are made during cell division.

"Falcon punch!" You have cancer.

So wear some sunscreen, use real sugar or honey, and don't be the test subject for that Hulktastic experiment your friends have been talking about.
